    Default Lights

    ok the past couple of weeks, when coming up the road at night, or more just before dark, ive been seeing these two really really bright lights, in the exactly same position every time, theres a bright one on the left, and a dimmer one on the right, first time i thought "oh maybe its the ISS" but then forgot about it but they're there really often, and i wonder what they are. is it worth buying a telescope because its driving me nuts lol. ive got binoculars and i might try and photograph them with my step dads decent camera. theyre always on the south side of where im from which is falkirk.

    Are they in the same area of sky as the moon? I think Jupiter and venus are getting close or some balls like that.

    no the moon is in the sort of east southeast direction, and these are in the south south west, although im just guessing using my sense of direction it might not be EXACTLY that

    im sure bert has captured the light in the first image in THIS tread: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    ok here are the pics ive been trying to post for ages. stupid internet. sorry theyre a bit fuzzy but this thing is seriousl getting on my nerves. the ones of the street are my street, and is facing a south east direction. the car ones are on the A80 from Bonnybridge towards Glasgow, and the bottom one is a street near mine. It's visible in Hillhead in glasgow, out towards the west. It often fades and brightens and on occasion has dissapeared. It used to be 2 lights but now its just one, always in the same place when i see it in my area, always south west of me.

    surely venus would change position in the sky, as we're moving, its moving, we're spinning, etc etc but its always in the exact same place
